  • Surgical Site Infections (SSI) have been shown to increase Arthroplasty costs by 61%[1] and it is estimated that 2% to 5% of all patients who undergo surgery will develop a SSI.[2]
  • The median cost of treating Prosthetic Joint Infection is $34,800 per patient[3] with infection shown as the cause of 17% of Revision Hips and 24.1% of Revision Knees[4]
FloraSeal®
  • FloraSeal has been shown to trap and immobilise bacteria that may cause infection to the patient. It rapidly and powerfully kills gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.[5]
  • FloraSeal effectively reduces microbial colonisation within 15 minutes and maintains a low microbial colonisation throughout the 24 hours after application, has the same efficacy when being used with or without an antimicrobial surgical incise drape, and mitigates microorganisms more effectively than an antimicrobial surgical incise drape alone.[6]

  • The RadiaLux™ lighted retractor is a single-use retractor designed to provide surgeons with the ability to manipulate soft tissue through a combination of blades when assembled onto a retractor handle.
  • The retractor provides illumination to the surgical field independent of an external light source or fibre optic cables.
  • The lighted retractor is indicated for enhancing visibility to a surgical field through retraction of soft tissue and illumination of the surgical cavity.
